About Us


All Indians Matter is a digital home for conversations with and about India on the issues that truly matter. For most of our post-Independence years, this was done by the news media. However, in recent times, issues that should be highlighted are sidelined and the voices that should find a megaphone are muffled. This website is a citizen’s effort to engage – through commentary and conversations – with everyone who cares about India, its Constitution, its liberal and secular values.

All Indians Matter was created by Ashraf Engineer, who was a senior editor with some of India’s leading newspapers for 17 years. His media work included a stint in 2011 in Afghanistan, where he trained and mentored journalists. He subsequently quit the news media and is now part of the communication consulting industry.

All Indians Matter is a passion project executed in Ashraf’s personal capacity.

He wrote his maiden book, ‘Bricks of Blood‘, in 2017.
